Should President Trump back this New Bill?The cost of treatment for many chronic diseases is controlled by corporations. The unfair nature of these profit driven companies drives the system away from treatment and puts many people at risk of getting worse. Dr. Richard Amerling joins Dr. George to explain the fallacy of the current regulations and practice of evidence base medicine. Evidence base medicine has its merits but the practice has set aside the importance of anecdotal medicine. Anecdotal practice is crucial to doctors treating and diagnosing patients properly.
Modern day medicine is overlooking diet & lifestyle in many cases and just treating people with medications. Dr. Amerling explains how so many people can get off of most of the medications with just choosing to consume different foods. There are good fats and bad fats and Dr. Amerling feels good fats in your diet shouldn’t affect you negatively. Find a physician that will treat you anecdotally and won’t throw a bunch of medications that you hoping you will feel better.
